Shocker! Biden is a Liar

Between Biden and Karl Rove, I'll believe Rove any day.

And Rove is calling Biden a liar after Biden claimed he privately castigated President Bush.

When, when, when will the press subject Biden to the same level of investigative scrutiny as they do the average republican vice presidential candidate?

Seriously, when?

Islamic Terrorists Stopped in Britain

Islamic terrorists were arrested in Great Britain after caught plotting to create an Easter bombing "spectacular" in northwestern England.

But according to Obama, we have nothing to fear from terrorists.


Pope's Good Friday Meditation

Below is from The Daily Mail.

Pope Benedict XVI last night attacked the rise of aggressive secularism in Western societies, warning them that they risked drifting into a 'desert of godlessness'.

He used his Good Friday meditations to compare deliberate attempts to remove religion from public life to the mockery of Jesus Christ by the mob as he was led out to be crucified.

'Religious sentiments' were increasingly ranked among the 'unwelcome leftovers of antiquity' and 'held up to scorn and ridicule', he added.

'We are shocked to see to what levels of brutality human beings can sink,' said the Pope at an evening ceremony at the Coliseum in Rome.

'Jesus is humiliated in new ways even today when things that are most holy and profound in the faith are being trivialised, the sense of the sacred is allowed to erode.

'Values and norms that held societies together and drew people to higher ideals are laughed at and thrown overboard. Jesus continues to be ridiculed.'

The German-born Pope, who turns 82 later this month, prayed Christians would respond by growing in faith

'May we never question or mock serious things in life like a cynic,' he added. He also condemned the oppression of women, saying there were 'many societies in the world where women fail to receive a fair deal.'

'Christ must be weeping for them,' he said.

The Morning After

It's morning in America and many liberals are waking up to an Obama-hangover and taking that "walk of shame" back to their homes and offices.

We've all been there but those who drank most deeply from the Obama kool-aid are suffering the worst, the quickest.

Follow this link to read a well-documented post on the breaking realization dawning on liberals that, to Obama, they were nothing more than stepping stones to power.

"Let Them Eat Pie"

In the middle of an economic global crisis, Obama flies a pizza chef 850 miles so he and his staff can have some thin crust and deep dish pizza?

Is that economically responsible? Is that environmentally responsible? Is that even demonstrating a modicum of leadership?

And why haven't the so-called representatives of the people (aka journalists) taken Obama to task for this grotesque self-indulgence?

Oh yes, that would disrupt "the narrative" that Obama actually gives a rat's ass about Americans.

(By the way, the Daily Mail newspaper reporting this antic is from the UK, not the USA.)

A Graph Says A Trillion Words

This is why we are having Tea Parties now rather than when President Bush was in office. (Hat Tip - Glenn Reynolds)

God Bless You

On this day, Good Friday, may God find you well and looking forward to the rebirth of Our Lord.

And hopefully, God willing, I will be able to blog real soon.

Obama Voter Fraud

I'm sure this was the only example of it.

Is Keith turning on Obama

You know the shine is off when MSNBC starts regretting Obama. While every conservative venue was concerned about many leftwing policies Obama seemed to support (but no major news organization would investigate), the Left's concern is now with Obama's continuation and expansion of "Bush's policies".

Bush's policies were relatively basic defensive steps against terrorists, Obama is attempting to kill democracy and freedom in order to grow his socialist/progressive/near-fascist agenda of cultural and financial control of the country. Think I'm going over-the-top? Watch these videos from MSNBC and Olberman (!) and then think about what these policies imply for our future.

Cry For Help

ProPublica is looking for some help.

Check Out the Obama Team’s Financial FilingsAdministration officials and high-ranking executive branch employees are required to disclose [2] the intimate details of their financial lives. The disclosures made include stock holdings, previous salaries and even book deals, such as Assistant Treasury Secretary Alan Krueger's advance of at least $180,000 [3] (plus royalties) from MacMillan, the publisher of his textbook, "Explorations in Economics." ProPublica is collecting these disclosures, and today, we're sharing what we've got [1].

We've flipped through the disclosures of 179 officials [1], ranging from the White House social secretary to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the documents are rich with interesting details. Help us parse the disclosures and post your discoveries in the comments section below.

Here's an example of what we've found so far: On paper, Susan Rice looks like she belongs at the Treasury [4], rather than the State Department. The new United Nations ambassador's disclosure [4] lists 10 individual stock holdings, largely in Canadian companies, that total at least $4.25 million.

The disclosures are a matter of public record. But the government insists on giving them out by request only. We’re cutting out the middleman: Dig into the documents yourself [1].

Obama Bowed

How dare an American, let alone our leader, bow to another person.

As Camille Paglia over at said...
Obama's staffing problems are blatant -- from that bleating boy of a treasury secretary to what appears to be a total vacuum where a chief of protocol should be. There has been one needless gaffe after another -- from the president's tacky appearance on a late-night comedy show to the kitsch gifts given to the British prime minister, followed by the sweater-clad first lady's over-familiarity with the queen and culminating in the jaw-dropping spectacle of a president of the United States bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia. Why was protest about the latter indignity confined to conservatives? The silence of the major media was a disgrace. But I attribute that embarrassing incident not to Obama's sinister or naive appeasement of the Muslim world but to a simple if costly breakdown in basic command of protocol.

UN Human Rights Council Sham

Packed with countries not known for their support for human rights - like China and Cuba - the UN's Human Rights Council is a big fat slap in the face. A disgusting cesspool of hypocrisy who's sole existance is to allow vicious thugs a chance to spew vile hatred on Isreal.

That Obama wants the US to join this obamination reflects his stupid navity, incompetance, and ignorance.

Many have written on this but Jonah Goldberg is the only one who writes both a sensible take on the council and makes you laugh. For example...
Anyway, the old crew scurried on board the new ship as the old one sank. Joining the Muslim countries are such stalwarts of human rights as China and Cuba. The only reason Mordor didn’t make the list is that J. R. R. Tolkien forgot to have Sauron denounce the “Zionist entity” in The Lord of the Rings.
Read the whole thing.

Spring Break Is Broken

Day two of spring break for my small, small children and I'm spent.

Will try to blog later - tomorrow we're going to see the Cherry Blossoms in DC.

By the way, don't go to the Museum of American History during Cherry Blossom Festival - the lines are crazy!

Win An Obama "Action Figure"

I guess they are reduced to giving these away.

Follow this link to enter a sweepstakes where the "prize" is an Obama "action figure".

Looks kinda like a bobblehead to me (and check out that scary packaging).

When You've Lost The Guardian...

You've lost The Left. Given that Obama is a progressive, socialist, leftie with a dollop of class-warfare identity politics thrown in, to lose The Guardian is catastrophic.

And yet, here we are with this article in The Guardian mocking Obama's inability to speak. I could have told you that months and months ago.

The man is an empty suit.

We Get What We Vote For

This charming post has copied from NRO- The Corner because it deserves full treatment. Ugh.

The American Way [David Freddoso]

Cook County Board President Todd Stroger recently explained cigarette tax increases in an unexpectedly candid radio interview.

Host John Williams asked: Isn't it unfair to keep targeting smokers with tax increases?

"That is the American way," Stroger replied. "And the way that it's generally done is, you find some group that's small enough where they can't beat you up, and you tax them and you tell everybody else, 'See? We didn't tax you.' "

This is President Obama's plan, too, if you understand what he is doing and hopes to do to high-income earners, energy producers, small-business owners and yes, smokers.
Given that Cook County is basically Chicago and so is Obama, I think Mr. Freddoso has a strong point - Obama is out to screw us all.

Go Blow Some Eggs

Well, I'm gearing up for Easter by blowing out the "guts" of eggs so whatever my kids dye will last more than 15 seconds.

Once I get them set up and busy, I think I'll blog.

Sorry about the slow down but yikes - life is good and hard these days.
